About me

Criminal Defense


 


The focus of my practice is criminal defense. I defend people charged with felonies and misdemeanors in state and municipal courts throughout Ohio. Much of my work is devoted to defending people charged with OVI and other vehicular crimes.



I value being ethical, and having the opportunity to be a strong advocate for my clients. It is critical that an attorney care about those he represents and communicate with them on a regular basis. Each of my clients is important and deserves capable representation.
